Interests of employees, employers and the public well-served by continued service, Society says
WASHINGTON, D.C. –
The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) is urging the U.S. Senate to confirm three nominees to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
President Barack Obama appointed the three — Chair Jacqueline A. Berrien and Commissioners Chai R. Feldblum and Victoria A. Lipnic — to the EEOC during a congressional recess nine months ago, in March. Without Senate action, their appointments will expire.
This fall, SHRM — the world’s largest
association devoted to human resource management with 250,000 members — has testified before the EEOC on the use of background credit checks in employment and on the impact of an aging workforce.
“In our experience, all three commissioners have provided a fair hearing to all viewpoints and serve as thoughtful and constructive arbiters of equal opportunity issues in the workplace,” Henry G. (Hank) Jackson, SHRM’s interim president and CEO, wrote to senators in calling for confirmation.
Noting the important role a fully functioning EEOC plays in a healthy economy, SHRM has joined The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in calling for confirmation.
“We believe that the interests of employees, employers and the public are well-served by the continued service of Commissioners Berrien, Feldblum and Lipnic,” Jackson wrote to senators.
